That varies by state. Also, what your ‘registration fee’ goes to varies by state too. I’ll post more when I get back to my desk (I am out and about and soon to destroy a Mitsu Mighty Max) but I’ll give you one example.Wait, isn't road tax poportional to the car's value like here? I feel robbed.
Here it is around 3%,every year.
Or here in Missouri, taxable horsepower based on some archaic ancient tablet.Some states also calculate registration fees based on vehicle weight.
NY is similar you pay a sales tax when you buy the car and then it’s a flat registration fee based on the type. In fact I think they don’t even differentiate stuff like SUV vs sedan, just passenger cars vs for hire vs commercial (as in tractor trailers and box trucks)In Texas, all vehicles of a class pay the same registration fees/road tax; all passenger cars pay the same as each other, all light pickups pay the same, all motorcycles pay the same - regardless of value
